About D'Lana Bailey
I am a fifth generation Texan. I grew up in north Texas and moved to the Texas Hill Country 15 years ago. San Antonio was the closest large city so I found myself spending a lot of time here. I fell in love with the city's history and diversity. I chose this home for me and my daughter to use when we came into town. We bring family and friends along to have a little weekend escape every now and then. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
D'Lana Bailey purchased this House in 2013
Why D'Lana Bailey chose East Side
The King William district is known for its historic mansions, but that is not all King William has to offer. This home is located in the Lavaca area of King William. Lavaca is the oldest existing neighborhood in San Antonio. It is defined by its small 19th century vernacular houses built primarily by working class families beginning in the early 1870s. The first City Directory for San Antonio was published in 1877, and at that time, Lavaca Street residents included families with German, Polish and Hispanic surnames. This remodeled historic home was built in 1910. It has an open floor plan and is great for large families and entertaining. Lavaca is an area rich with history, and I have tried to reflect that in the decor and feel of the property.
What makes this House unique
The neighborhood is so charming. It is a very short walk to popular restaurants and bars in the neighborhood. There are small businesses of all kinds nearby. There is a perfect view of the Tower of Americas from the front porch. It makes for a spectacular spot for fireworks on Independence Day and New Year's Eve.

We love this house!
Southtown has won my heart. The location is perfect and this house is the best. It had everything we needed. We love the decor and the personality . Excellent rental
We enjoyed our stay and found everything we needed
Place Did Not Live Up To The Ad. Only 2 Bedroom not 3
The home is nicely decorated but very small, old and slightly dirty. The home was surface clean but definitely needed a deep cleaning. The bedrooms are very very small. I couldn’t even open my suitcase in the master bedroom and there was no where to put my clothes for convenience. I booked this place because it looked food in the pictures and claimed to be a 3 bedroom. The 3rd bedroom is a den with glass doors that don’t have shades to close, making this unable to use as a bedroom (no privacy). For the price there are much better choices in the area.
Homey, comfy, quiet, walkable - perfect for our girls’ weekend
This was a wonderful place to stay for a weekend in SA with friends. We walked almost everywhere from the house and enjoyed morning coffee and breakfasts in the lovely back yard. The neighborhood is quiet and full of interesting homes. We loved our stay!
We greatly enjoyed staying at this house. It was the central gathering place for five siblings and spouses (no children.). We walked to the Riverwalk and attractions each day. It is super convenient. Four adults stayed at the property.
Good trip, weather tu.rned too cold w wind. SeaWorld was and is awesome place As good or better than Disney. Can’t say enough about SeaWorld. All the respect with what they do...unbelievable.
King William/ Lavaca historic district is a rather gentrified, very diverse, and unexpected part of San Antonio. The Lavaca neighborhood is the oldest existing neighborhood in San Antonio. It is bounded on the north by César E. Chávez Boulevard (formerly Durango), on the south by the Missouri-Kansas Railroad Line, on the east by IH-37, and on the west by South St. Mary’s Street. The area is going through modern renovations. It is a mix of old traditional and modern with properties that have remained untouched for decades alongside fully renovated homes. If you’ve got the time to take a stroll, bring sun block and a large lightweight umbrella for shade. It's away from the madness of the river walk but still very close by. Might remind you a little bit of some areas of New Orleans. Unique mix of German and Latin heritage. There are restored Victorian mansions right next to disused properties that might be up for sale. City bus line, VIA, is just minutes away. City-provided rental bicycles are also about a 15 minute walk away.

I want to build many positive reviews on this vacation house. Please keep many things in mind. This area can get very hot in the summer.. When you plan on touring the area, if you are new to South Texas, walking any distance can be a challenge during summer afternoon hours. Upon reading all the reviews of houses for rent in San Antonio, I noticed one reviewer had actually left less stars for a very nice house because the city is hot at midday in the summer. Another negative home review was from area gentrification.
During the winter the city is usually only mildly chilly in the early morning & late evening, and beautiful all day long.
During the summer its opposite, usually beautiful early morning, late evening, and can get very hot midday. Please keep all of that in mind during your travels & have a great time.
